“Kogi State is undergoing perilous time, Kogi State is undergoing precarious situation. Kogi State today is not only sick but equally suffers from what I call a ‘dreadful continental abnormality.’
“People are dying, salaries are not being paid, pensioners are not being paid, insecurity at its highest level in the history of our state, kidnapping, child molestation, child labour and pervasive hunger are facing Kogi State,” he said while speaking further on his reason for joining the Kogi governorship race.
